10 Corporate and Government Policies that Unfairly Punish Black Men (2616 hits)

We all know that slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, lynchings and racism put blacks at a significant sisadvantage when it comes to wealth building in America, but it seems that there is little understanding of why Black America is still so far behind materially. The question to be asked is:

"Since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 what has Corporate America and the government done to level the playing field for blacks"?

Certainly civil rights legislation made overt discrimination illegal and racism certainly is frowned upon today, but instead of outright racism we have moved into a situation where for the past 40 years corporate and government policies have systematically kept black people in in disadvantageous situations and have not allowed for equal growth. For every Affirmative Action or "special program" designed to help African Americans there are multiple policies working against black advancement. Below are 10 such policies that unfairly impact black men, the black family structure and the black community. To read more detail about each one of these policies visit this blog post at AfroDaddy.com: 10 Corporate and Government Policies that Unfairly Punish Black Men.

4. The "Drug War"

I recommend our communities getting together to start our own schools. We must look to our own community to create an educational and economic system for us that is fair. As many as can, homeschool your children. We should be looking into creating jobs by having small groups of children homeschooled by out of work educators. * Look online for the documentary called HIDDEN COLORS by Tariq Nasheed. WE NEED TO KNOW OUR TRUE HISTORY!!!!!!!!!
OLD WISE PROVERB: Don't let your enemy educate your children."
We (males of color) have inadvertently become the enemy of the mainstream in America.
